Customizing the User Form

You have created a customized copy of the user form: UserForm.

ALERT! Your form changes will only be visible in a user topic after it has been saved.

ALERT! Please keep the UserRegistration form and the user form definition in sync. When you update the user form you need to edit/save the NewUserTemplate (not recommended, see below). This ensures that the fields are in the right order.

A form for new users

If a new user registers, the new user page is prefilled with the contents of NewUserTemplate. That template also contains a user form, based on the form definition in UserForm.

You have created a custom user form, so you ought to use a custom 'new user' template as well. This will make your changes safe to future Foswiki upgrades.

To create your custom new user template, do this:

  • you will return here after saving

  • Or create a copy by hand:
    1. Take a copy of NewUserTemplate and save it to Users.NewUserTemplate
    2. Set the topic form to your custom UserForm topic
